 4)  When you reach the end of the chenille stem, leave enough space for 1 Red Faceted Bead.  Attach Faceted Bead with Low Temp Glue Gun to secure & finish “candy cane”.

Making with Tri-Beads:

Follow the same directions above, just use 2) Tri-Beads instead of 1 pony bead.  Each Tri-Bead Candy Cane requires a 6″ White Chenille Stem, 2 Red Faceted Beads, 22) Red Tri-Beads, & 24) Clear Tri-Beads (to make as shown here).

More Info:

Kids will love decorating the tree with these candy canes!  If you let your toddler hang them, they will all be around the bottom & most likely there will be several per branch.  It’s pretty funny.  Or if you have a creative daughter (like me), she will have to make them with her favorite colors and in her own creative pattern…
